3 pointsIt's me again. The mod roundup has most definitely served its purpose this time. It tipped me off that I never got around to updating the K2 version of a mod that I updated for K1 in January. The work was nearly all done and I was just too lazy to take new screenshots at the time. So good job, mod roundup. Updates Robe Adjustmnet – Fixed an issue that made the training cutscene wonky if you skipped through dialogue too quickly. Jedi Tailor – While testing a while back, the Tailor's shop spawned inside a Jawa. So I tried to fix that for this update, but because it's a random occurrence I'm not sure if it actually worked. Also fixed another bug in the Tailor's dialogue. Fashion Line I: Cloaked Jedi Robes / Cloaked Jedi Robes & Supermodel Port – Redid all textures. Higher resolution and ideally higher quality. Lightsaber Visual Effects for K1 and K2 – Added new options for blue and green lightsabers and converted all texture files to superior TPC format. New Mods Player Soundset Restoration – Restores the player's voice to K2 so you say random stuff when performing actions like you do in K1. Romance Enhancement: Biromantic Bastila – Allows a female player character to romance Bastila. Something Completely Different I have two somethings this time. I suspect certain individuals might be experiencing an increase in productivity on account of having more extra time than usual for certain reasons. First, @VarsityPuppet has finally gotten around to announcing the winners of the 2018 Mod of the Year awards. I hadn't realized that my Cloaked Jedi Robes had won for one category, so thanks to whomever voted for that. VP has also promised to get the 2019 competition running soon. Second, @AmanoJyaku has been working on a new script decompiler to address some issues with DeNCS. If successful, it will be a boon to modding as there are many scripts that cause DeNCS to choke up, preventing us from fixing bugs in them or otherwise improving their performance. We ran into several such unfortunate cases during Community Patch development, and there are also many scripts in K2 still running the bugged original random loot code even though TSLRCM fixes some of those bugs because the scripts without source code couldn't be recompiled. Any progress on that front could help make those fixes and other mods possible.
1 pointIt's been a year since I started doing these mod roundups. Some of you appear to be reading them, so I think I'll be sticking with it into the new year. I’ve found that forcing myself to go through my upload history in order to provide you people with updates is actually kind of helpful. It makes me more consciously aware of what I’ve been working on and what hasn’t been updated in a while. On occasion it’s even led to the release of mods that might not have otherwise seen the light of day. So there will be more of these mod roundups yet. Updates Korriban: Back in Black for K1 - New installer, including a version compatible with KOTOR Community Patch v1.8 and beyond. Some new fixes have been added, too: Tariga is now female, as according to the student Tamlen; Tariga and a couple other students will now attack with lightsabers; and the two Sith rebels in the caves that were missing robes before have robes now. Vision Enhancement for K1 - New installer, including a K1R-compatible version. Some minor cleaning up, too. Feat Fixes for K2 - Added some fixes for the Scoundrel class. Zhug Attack Fix for TSLRCM - Minor administrative update. Mandalorian Armor for K1 - Minor administrative update. Jedi Tailor for K1 - Fixed a few bugs in the tailor's dialogue. New Mods Teal Hammerhead for K1 - Gives the Republic ships in the first game the color scheme they have in the second game. Something Completely Different Usually I’d link to something else here, such as the aforementioned KOTOR Community Patch update or maybe the subreddit poll, but this is a special occasion. I’ve decided to start releasing these over on Reddit, too. If you’re reading it here, you may continue to do so and nothing will change and that’s not very special. But I’ll be using up this section for other stuff on the Reddit version and I have nothing else to talk about. So that’s it!
